My brother got an iPhone. I scoffed. Then I played with it. Pretty cool. It'd be nice to have gmail and gmaps along with pandora on the road. The trouble is I'm with Verizon and don't particularly want to change. There are 4 phones on my plan. Mine, my wife's and my mom and dad's. They don't care much what they have as long as it functions, but I'd like to do email, etc. I'm not sure if there is an economical way of going about doing this (cell phones are a luxury, after all), but what would be your choice if you were in my shoes?
